colleagues to extend the production tax credit for wind energy. i would like to note that on the heels of senator durbin's comments about china, we wish the chinese energy industry well, but we don't want to outsource our wind energy jobs to china needlessly. and we're on a path to do so. and i see my colleague from iowa here, senator grassley, who i know will speak later on the wind production tax credit. but it's going to expire in less than one month from now -- december 31 to be specific -- if we do not act. that means we're one month away from pulling the rug out from an industry that's currently playing a key role in revitalizing american manufacturing, creating jobs, empowering our nation. we're literally one month away from ending a credit that supports tens of thousands of workers right here in the united states. and each day that we wait to extend the p.t.c., we risk losing more good-paying american jobs. we also risk doing away with a credit that is a major contributor to the success and development of our nation's wind industry. this credit has helped countries leverage bil
who say, i care deeply about whether you're doing enough on energy and advanced manufacturing research. if you're going to help nih push us to the next frontiers of alzheimer's, research, and other important biomedical research. and then say, but it's not really my business, i'm not a budget person to worry about whether we are cutting too deeply on our discretionary domestic budget. and what i have to say to folks is, you cannot attend you care deeply about innovation and research, and investing in early childhood, and investing in science, s.t.e.m. education but if you're indifferent to whether or not we reduce our budget deficit by simply taking deeper and deeper cuts in domestic discretionary budget, at some point you get to a point where you're simply trading off between early childhood and biomedical research and higher education. and those are not trade-offs the american public wants us to make. so we need to have, when we talk about having, getting our fiscal house in order, i want to remind people that when i was here in the early '90s, one of the is why people made that case
americany: -- mr. mcnerney: this morning i rise about two things i care passionately about. wind energy and veterans. i spent more than 20 years in the wind industry as a technology development engineer. in those days we saw some spectacular failures and dramatic failures, but every year we put more into the technology development. little bit this year in the aerodynamics, gear box, foundation, every year a little incremental improvement in the control systems, field testing so we understood what was going on and the power electronics, and today we have an industry that is a spectacular industry. . the touchins produce power for five cents per kilowatt. it's been a successful business. the united states dominated that business because of consistent policies, consistent tax policies. we could rely on the policies being there year after year. investors came in, engineers came in. in the early 1980's those policies began to change and the technology began to leave our country and we've seen -- i've seen in my career the incentives come and go over the years. i can tell you it's devastating

a national battery innovation hub proposal, a competition from the department of energy because we were working together to put in michigan the new advanced innovation hub. things that we've been doing to make things and grow things and workers and management together. all of that is out the window and it's horrible for our state for people to see and experience this divisiveness. >> all right. do you think right-to-work legislation helps bring jobs to your state? >> no, absolutely not. i mean, the reality is this, if workers vote to have a union and if somebody comes into the workplace, they don't have to join. the governor is wrong when he says that. i think it's important to go to the point to say that the difference is they get the benefits of collective bargaining. the question is do they contribute, not whether or not they get the benefits. so does it help? no. as you pointed out last night, wages and benefits are lower. working conditions are less safe in states where workers don't have a voice at the bargaining table to collectively bargain. we don't want to raise to this bottom
u.s. energy information society and the center for strategic and international studies. "washington journal" is next. host: good morning. it is friday, december 7, 2012. the 71st anniversary on the attack of pearl harbor. reaction continues this morning over yesterday's resignation announcement of jim demint. the approach and fiscal clift deadline continues to loom over congress and the white house. that is where we want to begin. is it ok for leaders to compromise, or should they stick to their principles and would it be ok if doing so sent us over the fiscal cliff? give us a call this morning. you can also catch up with us on all of your favorite social media websites. a very good morning to you. i want to begin with the question of compromise or sticking to principle. this is a question a gallup organization asked in a recent poll. it found 62% of americans would like to see the federal government leaders compromise on an agreement to avoid the fiscal cliff budget measures set to go into effect next month. more than twice the 25% who want leaders to stick to their principles. a m

of energy that's both cheaper and cleaner than coal or oil, talking about natural gas. but we end up burning off millions of cubic feet of it a day because we don't have enough demand since our government refuses to support embracing nat gas for service vehicles. while we probably aren't going to use it ourselves, last time we got good news in the form of a government report. commissioned by the department of energy that gave its blessing to the idea of exporting the fuel via liquefied natural gas terminals, it's a positive for the natural gas stocks. maybe the biggest beneficiary and you might not have thought of it, dominion resources, letter "d." it's a major utility for providing electricity to customers in west virginia, pennsylvania, and north carolina. the company used to have an oil and gas business but sold that off years ago at the top. dominion now is a gas ticker as they hope to build an export facility in maryland and it seems more likely this project will be approved in the wake of yesterday's pro nat gas report. the company has a history of raising the dividend to boot. and be

people. we must not let american innovation in our energy industry go to waste. we have the potential for all kinds of new middle class jobs- from the fields and platforms where we drill, to the manufacturing plants that will return to the u.s. with the lower cost of energy. but we need government to encourage these job opportunities, not continue to block them. a return to sound monetary policy would also help by making the future value of a dollar more predictable. and we must get the cost of health insurance under control. you should be able to get a health care plan that fits your needs and your budget, from any company in america that's willing to sell it to you, and with the same tax benefit if you buy it yourself or have an employer buy it for you. these ideas will help create middle class jobs. but we also have to make sure that our people have the skills to do these new jobs. and a limited government can help by promoting curriculum reform, teacher training and empowering parents with the freedom to choose their kids' school. our tax code should reward education investments t

. cheryl: is time to make money with charles payne, looking at texas-based energy company. charles: it is the topic of the day because the department of energy came out with a gigantic study on liquefied natural gas and for the most part after reading all of it the upshot is it is a great thing for america's economy. at the forefront of this, they got approval to export liquefied natural gas a year ago. the day they got the approval i contacted the company and a secretary said we can't talk to anybody, we're all partying. the stock, subscribers have been in this three four times, this is capital intensive. they have $11 billion and raised -- putting this on and start to export this by 2015. chris that given the dim view on gasoline and zynga wire investors' optimistic this will allow president obama to turn positive? charles: if the president will see the numbers he likes like manufacturing the only edge we have a, this is why this is so amazing. natural gas costs $16.58 in japan. is less than $3 here and $12 in europe so we will have a competitive advantage to be able to put some
